Brevard Public Schools thanks Gov. Rick Scott and our legislative delegation for delivering assistance we need to keep our students and staff safe.

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Brevard Public Schools thanks Gov. Rick Scott and our legislative delegation for delivering assistance we need to keep our students and staff safe.

The bill the governor signed today will accelerate Brevard’s strategy to add resource officers, improve mental health services, and “harden” our campuses against intruders.

We are glad the new law imposes criminal penalties for threatening a mass shooting to a school, including in social-media posts

Said BPS Superintendent Desmond Blackburn: “I’m proud of our state leaders’ courage to consider recommendations from both sides of the aisle for the greater good.”
